Grub on 2 hard disks

I have 2 computers. One of them is fully loaded and a new config.
The other one is an old Celeron machine.
I bought a new HDD for the Celeron machine.
I did not have any means to load this HDD with an OS
So I connected this HDD to the new machine.

Now the new machine had 2 hdds
Primary master hda1
Primary slave hdb1

I started loading ubuntu.
Everything went fine. when grub came up for installation it asked for the mbr and it installed it on the mbr of hda1

I want to install on the mbr of hdb1. How do i do that.

Also now i hve disconnected it from the new pc and it is connected to the Celeron machine

Now if i want to install GRUB how do i do it

Thanks and regards
